Burgeoning Urological Diseases to Bolster Foley Catheters Market

Global foley catheter market is anticipated to witness a steady CAGR of 5.9% during the forecast period (2020-2027). Urinary retention is a chronic condition in which the patient is unable to voluntarily urinate, leading to an increased volume of residual urine in the bladder.

According to the American Academy of Family Physicians (AAFP), the overall incidence of urinary retention is 4.5 to 6.8 per 1,000 men annually.

Urological diseases, such as urinary retention, benign prostate hyperplasia (BPH), bladder obstruction, urinary incontinence and prostate cancer, have become increasingly prevalent among men.

This growing prevalence of urological disorders is expected to stimulate demand for foley catheters. 

In addition, neurological disorders such as multiple sclerosis, cerebral palsy, spinal trauma and strokes also generate urological disorders, which requires the use of foley catheters. 

Latex-based Catheters to Dominate Market, Silicone-based Catheters Catching Up

Latex-based 2-way catheters are anticipated to account for a major chunk of the market share of foley catheters.

Coated with hydrogel silicone, silicone elastomer and PTFE Teflon material, these catheters reduce urethral irritation, encrustations, lower surface friction and improve patient comfort.

Projections indicate a market share of 90.4% by 2027, growing at a CAGR of 5.8% during the forecast period.

However, silicone-based foley catheters are set to gain traction during the forecast period. This is attributed to their longer lifespans, large lumen diameter and reduced risk of urinary tract infections.

These catheters also have a smooth surface which reduce the risk of encrustations, as compared to latex catheters. Silicone-based catheters are expected to register an impressive CAGR of 7.2% during the forecast period.
